Yeah, if you want to stay legal (probably best for everyone concerned), concentrate on Lossless Legs (http://shnflac.net/) Would recommend at least one (maybe two for added security - do back-ups in duplicate) external hard-drive(s). Download (stream) your show, burn it onto CD or copy it to your mp3 player and then save back-up(s) on external hard-drive(s). Then, if the kids stick the CD of your favourite show in the toaster (my kids think it's sooooooo funny), or if they just oxidise through over-use, or if you drop your mp3 player into the jacuzzi, you can create new CDs/mp3s without having to re-invent the wheel. If you prefer CDs (i.e. you're old-fashioned like me) there are plenty of covers available via Dead Pie Shop (and others e.g. Larry Fox).

Be careful, this kind of thing can easily take over your life - check out this (virus-free) link:-

((so funny - the guy who created this can get a free beer (or three) from me any day)).

WARNING - This forum can get a bit 'political' every now and then and some quite serious vitriol can flow - when it does, just back-off for a few days and wait for it to get back to normal. Most of the times it's great and very useful but, just like everything I guess, sometimes it hits the pits.

Good hunting .............

Thanks for the advice - it's helpful to know which site to focus on. The Dead Pie Shop is amazing!

I love this video! I'm kinda going through something similar. I'm trying to get the entire Europe '72 tour on CD before it all goes offline, and I think I've burned about 200 CDs worth of Dead music.
